Bright Future Grants making a difference to local schools
2022 Bright Future Grants recipients Sacred Heart Primary School in Newport recently held a school assembly and tour for Mobil Altona staff to express their gratitude for the grant that funded new maths resources for the school.
The popular Bright Future Grants program aims to provide funding to local schools in support of STEM projects, promoting science and maths education among primary and secondary schools in the regions close to Mobil operations in Australia.
Grants can be used for the purchase of equipment, books, teaching resources, education programs and science, maths or engineering initiatives for students and families.
“The relationship that Sacred Heart has had with ExxonMobil over the last several years has been incredible. Their generosity greatly supported our students when we were able to purchase new computers during lockdown and this year we have been able to replace a remarkable amount of our mathematics equipment,” said Nicholas Rouse, teacher and ICT leader at the school.
“Both the students and teachers thank ExxonMobil for all their support!”
Other grant recipients in the local community this year were St Augustine’s Primary School Yarraville who plan to make a short film about the history of the Westgate Bridge and St Margaret Mary’s Primary School in Spotswood for the purchase of a large screen TV for classroom use.
